Prime rib has a reputation for being extremely fancy and fussy. (Probably because it costs upwards of 60 bucks when you order it at a high-end steakhouse.) But you can easily find the cut at your neighborhood butcher, and surprisingly, it isn’t that pricey or tough to make. It’s time to start searing, grilling and stir-frying steak at home. Here are nine foolproof ways to cook prime rib—no culinary training required.
